Na'aseh V'nishmah: Exceeding Our Grasp-For Heaven's Sake

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This class will serve as an introduction and a compliment to the class I'll be teaching with Joe Septimus on R' Kook's 'Fourfold Son'. 
We will learn a remarkable text from R' Nachman of Breslov on the meaning of 'Na'aseh V'nishma'/We will do and listen'. This classic expression of obedience and covenantal commitment, is read by R' Nachman as broad rule governing life in general and the spiritual life in particular. 'Na'aseh V'nishma' is for R' Nachman a call to spiritual humility and ambition simultaneously; an invitation to a life of seeking and continual growth. We will augment this Hassidic master with texts from other philosophers to support R' Nachman. No prior text knowledge required. Bring an open heart and an open mind.
